I've been taking this for over 2 years. I take it exactly the same time each night and so far it has worked well for me. I still have breakouts around the time my period comes but my period is much lighter and shorter.

I started taking Tri-Sprintec a year ago and other than a little added curves, I had no problem with it. Just like everyone else, CVS switched me to Tri-Previfem when I came home and obviously needed summer refills. They didn't even give me the option of staying on Sprintec which later made me really annoyed knowing I could still get it as long as I let them know a little bit in advance. As so ...

I began taking Tri-Previfem after CVS switched the prescription. Since then I have gained over 10lbs and have embarrassing face, chest, back and shoulder acne. It hit me this morning that the only thing I've changed in my lifestyle recently was the pill. I read the reviews and confirmed my thoughts, Tri-Previfem is the source of problem. Stopping the pill immediately and hope things get back t ... Show Full Comment
